I'm taking a few hours off from work this morning to catch the Dodgers' 9 A.M. start against Florida, wrapping up a four-game set before they head home to take on the Reds and Cardinals.

So, in less than an hour, I'll be enjoying (hopefully) watching Derek Lowe and the rest of the Bums take on the Marlins while chowing down on chilaquiles (and not Dodger Dogs!). Then I'll work for only three hours, followed by watching Justin's game at San Diego HS later this afternoon. My friend and I are taking her mother out for Mexican Mothers' Day this evening, and I won't have to miss much baseball at all, since the latest game on the MLB slate starts at 5:30 PT this afternoon.

But, this is the earliest game start I can remember the Dodgers ever having. So bring it on, guys, and make it worth my scheduled leave time.

Just lost Crying or Very sad in the bottom of the ninth; the Dodgers and Marlins split the four-game series. Derek Lowe and Sergio Mitre matched each other with shutouts into the ninth today. Lowe stayed in and gave it up, losing despite a great effort. But, that's baseball.

Can't say I wasted time staying home for this; just glad I got to see a great pitching duel even in spite of ending up on the wrong end.

And I was so looking forward to celebrating a win, appropriately, with fish tacos from Rubio's!

Linda, why did the game start so early? I know the Red Sox start at 11am on Patriot day but 9am is early.

Because it was on the East Coast (Florida), so it was actually at 12:00 p.m. It was a day game.

Good catch, Amy. I know how easy it is for these East Coasters to forget about us out here. Smile I remember how when I was visiting on the East Coast how I automatically subtracted three hours for everything I saw advertised as "Eastern Standard Time", and then later realized I was planning three hours early on everything.

Meanwhile, while I was posting about "breakfast and baseball", I received the FL feed on my TV and their announcers were advertising "Have lunch with the Marlins today."

I'm working on inventing a Dodger Dog chorizo recipe, if the need ever arises again for baseball with breakfast. Smile

Embarassed DUH............LOL I read it but the 9am start just jogged me to think they were in LA for some reason, although you said "before they head home"...being 3 hours ahead it is hard to think of baseball at 9am. I guess our afternon starts at 1:05 are 10:05, huh? I get it Wink

Found this thread from last year and thought I would bump it up almost exactly a full year later.

That much is being repeated. I noticed that last year the Dodgers lost, so I'm hoping for better results this time. Hi-Ku in the morning vs. Burke Badenhop.

Still perfecting my recipe--huevos los Dodgers, chorizo de Dodger Dog!

Yes! Baseball for breakfast is over at lunch, just past noon here on the West Coast. Fish tacos were most definitely on the menu! Smile (Sorry, Frodio!)

Another display of good starting pitching.

This was a measure of revenge for last year's ninth-inning heartbreaker. Nice going, Hi-Ku, and good work, Sammy!

Still LOL-ing at Crzblue's comment from last year:

Well, neither are an option today! Smile But even though Blake had an error, it was noted his fielding percentage is highest among all MLB third basemen.

So last time it was fish tacos, this time beer for breakfast. Very Happy

Seriously, with the Dodgers on the road playing the Brewers in Milwaukee, I did not take time off today as I sometimes do for these mid-week morning starts that pop up a handful of times on the schedule each year.

I really needed to get the hours in this week, so I sacrificed baseball with breakfast and in the spirit of things, wore my #58 warm-up replica to work today, knowing Chad was getting the start for the Bums. Unfortunately, the signal for the Dodgers' radio station is very weak and I couldn't pull it in inside the building I work in, so I was unable to listen to the play-by-play.

Instead, I tuned in to the Mighty XX, which was broadcasting the Cubs-Padres game almost simultaneously (with a slightly later start), and just listened for between-inning updates on the Dodgers-Brewers. Chad cruised into the eighth inning with a shutout, and I called Harpo for an update, when I learned a call was being made--to the bullpen after Jason Kendall tripled. (Meanwhile, the Cubs were busy beating the Padres...)

Well, talk about phone calls. Quite interestingly, I was handed a job assignment almost at that exact moment that involved contacting one of our clients in Columbus, Ohio...located on Billingsley Road! (Note that Chad is also from the Buckeye State...hmmm?) Question Question

Eerie, eerie...but it was a big 7-2 win for the Dodgers, taking the series at Miller Park, with the game over by lunchtime. Through Tuesday, they had lost five straight and broke that streak with a comeback win on Wednesday, and head into interleague play this weekend with a two-game winning streak.

Let's toast to that...one Miller Lite, please!

Baseball at breakfast was very nice today!

With a 7-4 win, the Dodgers sealed a sweep of the Reds in Great American Ballpark. I think we're 8-1 against Cincinnati this year. We need to get them on our schedule more often. Smile

Dodger fans (on the West Coast) get baseball at breakfast two times over the span of four days.

It was a 10 a.m. start on Thursday in Philadelphia for the road team's first "early game" of the year; unfortunately, I was working and only got to see a couple of middle innings (close to lunchtime), and the Dodgers ended up winning.

This Sunday, another 10 a.m. start is on the schedule, this one in Florida, but I'll be in church at that time. Perhaps a post-service desayuno is in order, and I'm sure I can make it home by the third inning. Now that I think about it, maybe this is the perfect time for Sunday brunch!

Anyone for mimosa? Along with fish tacos? (Sorry, Frodio!) Embarassed



What can you tell us about John Koronka?

Well, it looks like I got my own answer! Very Happy

Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw, by the way, lost his no-hitter in the eighth inning and would have been the youngest Dodger pitcher to throw one, had he been able to finish. This victory had to really boost his confidence as he's been awesome at home this year, but pretty bad on the road.

Dodgers 12, Marlins 5, fish tacos all around, and they're 2-0 at desayuno this year. I'll take mine with lime and drowned in Rubio's salsa. Sweet!

Oh, you mean the 11-1 final in which former Dodger Andy LaRoche had, what was it, five hits? Yeah, that would be enough to do it.

And the games at dinnertime haven't been very good on the digestive system, either! Mad Exclamation

Well that wasn't exactly the way to get the season started, losing to the Pirates, but IMO I think tihs is what happens when you put a #4 starter on the mound in your season opener. Dodgers lost 11-5.

Someone else I know made that same point. I was not sold on Padilla being the man to get the job done; he's recovering from a gunshot, was not the most effective starter in ST, and although he came through in some big starts late last season, I was a bit leery this time. (As was Bill Plaschke.) I hoped I was wrong, but I guess Plaschke's criticism was validated, and I'll give Joe Torre a pass here. He's allowed a bad call or two per season. Smile

However, it was also pointed out by another friend that we are far from the first good team to lose their season opener to the Pirates in recent years. The Cardinals lost to them at home last year on Opening Day, and look how they finished.

THe Pirates are not as bad as they appear though.They had their top pitcher Duke pitching.McCutchen is a future superstar.Doumit i think had a great game,.Garrett Anderson..I was not too concerned.I think tonights game will be more crucial since Kershaw will be pitching. Cari

Well, here we are for Baseball at Breakfast for the second time in Opening Week. Heh. Hope this one goes better. So far, the Dodgers are 0-2 to start the season.

Much better results! A 10-2 win and sharp outing by Chad bring the Dodgers their first win of the year.

Very Happy

It was so nice to see Chad have a good outing! I am still disapointed in Padilla's and Kershaw's starts and awaiting to see how Kuroda does tonight.. Cari
